    agree, they have more than enough power/torque, but, I think something with a higher rev limit would 'fit' 004S better.

    NHTSA confirmed SCG with published status on US gov website with the SCG cars and images of the cars. Legally it’s a done deal. So SCG is, figuratively and literally off to the races.

    If there’s interest I see if I can get permission to show some of the engineering videos of 004. It’s super cool. As I will have 001, I am pretty excited. The first 25 founders are being show weekly updates on very detailed engineering. It’s all quite amazing to see the amount of work that goes into it.

    Redline on the Ford 5.2L Voodoo engine is 8200 rpm and sounds like nothing else.

    HP isn't everything. I'm not remotely close to buying one of these cars for financial purposes, but if I were going for a 004, I'd much rather have a light car with perfect driving dynamics. A 1000HP engine isn't necessary for spirited driving. In fact, it hinders it, in most real world practical situations. 004 could work with a V6 or even a nice little turbo 4.

    This is what doesn't make sense about SCG and the low volume manufacturer status, you're supposed to be making a replica under this law. So how Jim has gotten around this could be very interesting as for the intent of this new law.

    Maybe they’ll pass as very coarse Ferrari replicas. Maybe why the badge is so similar too.

    IMO 004 and 006 needs a smooth running high reving quad cam motor, possibly even a 12, if youre building a euro inspired and driving car it needs a euro style motor.. Its the smoothness and revability of an ohc motor that works for these types of cars, otherwise its sorta like a vette or a modern rendition of the intermechanica from the early 70s.

    The question boils down to who builds a Na quad cam motor thats emissions certified.
    Ford we know does with both the mustang Gt and Gt 350. I think cosworth does an emisisons friendly version of the ford, which adds provenance and performance. The Aston V12 if the motor is still in production?
    I wonder if Lambo would sell Jim some Aventador 12's.

    Still I would talk to mercury marine about emissions certifying their motor.

    Much as i love a SBC it just seems the wrong motor for these otherwise well sorted and excellent cars. But then maybe the price is super reasonable.
    Or maybe Jim is prepared to sell a roller, and then we can install our own motor.

    Perhaps possibly with the impending demise of the 750 hp zr1 motor and the vette moving to quad cam these older SBC will be able to carry the classic moniker for these cars. But still one could just get a zr1.

    ummm, according to the press release, 004S will begin deliveries next year.
    Add on some "due to circumstances beyond our control" time, and figure early 2020. ;)

    I hate to say it, and I hope I wrong. But this venture seems a little late to the party. Cars are changing and fast. Electric powertrains are quickly taking over. It's nice to be nostalgic etc, but if this company is to survive in the long term, they really need to get with the current technologies.

    I wish him well...so much so I'm kind of interested in becoming a dealer for the car.

    Well back in 2010 he built his F430 GT2 based P4/5C (Competizione) - his one-off race car that raced the 24 Hrs of Nurburgring in 2011 and for 2012 added a F1 style KERS system (kinetic energy-recovery system). So I'm sure he is well aware of current hybrid systems. One step at a time. Although with his current plan, including street and race cars, he seems to be taking about 12 steps at a time. :)

    Yes I do remember that car. I was going to bring it up in my post. However I believe (and could be wrong) cost was a major factor in not pursuing it. When that car was built electric assist in cars was very expensive. Most manufacturers took a loss in production to get it to market. Ferrari installed it in the LaFerrari but definatly passed those costs into the buyer.

    I would love to see this car prevail. It would be awsome for a north American bespoke car company to succeed. It will be a long and expensive road, but if anybody can pull it off it will be Jim.
